When we started the business our best resources were organizations like MFA, IFAI and the Canvas Products Association Zone meetings. My advice to others is to go to every conference you can and learn from everyone there. One morning at 6 a.m. my husband Jim was looking for a certain kind of fitting. He sent out an email to about 30 other fabricators asking for help. An hour later he had four answers. Even our competitors are willing to share their knowledge.
